ACTION ALERT! SAVE AMERICA! PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION! TIME IS WASTING! This is a very dangerous appointment. The future of American jurisprudence hangs in the very balance. Put this on your daily things to do. Koh must go. Read this post carefully and send it to everyone you know.
WE MUST PROTECT AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY!
I took part in a conference call with Andy McCarthy and Ed Whelan — and sponsored by Erick Erickson of RedState.com, Hugh Hewitt and others — to discuss the nomination of Yale Law School Dean and transnationalist Harold Koh to be the legal adviser at the State Department.
I have blogged on Koh here.
JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations'
legal "norms." Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United
States constitutes an "axis of disobedience" along with North Korea and
Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government's
top lawyers: Harold Koh.
President Obama has nominated Koh — until last week the dean of Yale Law
School — to be the State Department's legal adviser. In that job, Koh would
forge a wide range of international agreements on issues from trade to arms
control, and help represent our country in such places as the United Nations and
the International Court of Justice.
It's a job where you want a strong defender of America's sovereignty. But
that's not Koh. He's a fan of "transnational legal process," arguing that the
distinctions between US and international law should vanish.
The primacy of international legal "norms" applies even to treaties we
reject. For example, Koh believes that the UN Convention on the Rights of the
Child — a problematic document that we haven't ratified — should dictate the
age at which individual US states can execute criminals. Got that? On issues
ranging from affirmative action to the interrogation of terrorists, what the
rest of the world says, goes.
Including, apparently, the world of radical imams. A New York lawyer, Steven
Stein, says that, in addressing the Yale Club of Greenwich in 2007, Koh claimed
that "in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why sharia law
would not be applied to govern a case in the United States."
Koh is a post American transnationalist. American jurisprudence is based on national sovereignty. Self determination on national security, whereas Koh would abdicate this to a new world order. Opposing Koh is not an attack on his integrity or his fine legal
mind. You can oppose someone on policy. Oppose Koh on his beliefs.
Abdicating US sovereignty to "international law" means handing over our self-determination to the driver of the UN bus – the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
PLEASE GO HERE FOR BACKGROUND ON KOH.
In a series of posts on National Review Online's Bench Memos blog that
earned prominent attention, EPPC President Ed Whelan exposed the
radical transnationalist views of controversial State Department legal
adviser nominee Harold Koh. Immediately below is the outline of the

DO SOMETHING. DO SOMETHING. DO SOMETHING.
We need 51 votes against. Get to those moderate Democrats. Hammer the Republicans. This is a very definite attack on America from within.
